The osprey cam will be down for a bit while tower maintenance is being performed. Our osprey family is still at the nest so check back before they leave.

Is the tower maintenance scaring the osprey away from the nest? I don't think they'll hang around while folks are up on the tower. Hope the camera comes back up before the birds decide to leave for their winter home!

The ospreys are still there. Tower maintenance crews are not at the nest site, but we decided to turn off the camera while work was being performed.

Awwww, that's too bad. Is there some danger to the birds while the work is being done? Sorry, I guess you can't really answer that. Just wondering why the decision was made to turn off the camera.

Any idea when the maintenance might be completed?

Thanks for this latest picture.

No danger to the ospreys. As previously mentioned, the ospreys are still on the nest.
The crews are working about halfway up the tower. We just thought it best to disable the camera while work was being performed. We hope work to be completed by the weekend.
